According to Wikipedia definition of Love, the later is "an emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. Love is also a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection; and "the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another".
I may care and like certain people, treat them with strong affection and personal attachment and not call it love, I have another word for it - mutual respect.
Why did we need to label it as love ?
If to hate or simply not like certain people do we deprive them of human kindness, compassion or affection ? Are we gonna let them hurt alone ? I find it hard to ignore them even if giving them the respect they deserve it's almost impossible for me.
And what's the deal of getting everybody a soul-mate or simply a better half ? Is it so hard to believe that some people do better by themselves ?
It drives me crazy when people ask me why I do prefer to be alone ? Every time I must come up with some lies or sugarcoat the truth of the fact that I love to be alone (and with a couple of friends).
